The Countryside in a Day – Moreton Show 2021
The Moreton Show is the highlight of the Cotswolds farming and social calendar and following last year’s cancellation because of the COVID-19 pandemic we were so pleased when the decision was made to hold the show again this year. The show offers a truly British farming and agricultural experience, showcasing the best livestock and produce reared and grown across the Cotswolds as well as providing a showcase for smaller, local artisan craftsmen and women. Competitions are held for horses, ponies, cattle, sheep, goats, poultry, dogs, homecrafts, flowers, vegetables and even scarecrows! This year’s show was held on Saturday 4th September under beautiful blue Cotswold skies with plenty of sunshine!
Nimrod has always been a keen supporter of British farming and rural life. Since 2018 we have sponsored the Three Shires Cattle Trophy (in partnership with the Hanbury Countryside Show in Worcestershire, Burwarton Show in Shropshire and Moreton Show in Gloucestershire ) but sadly this year Hanbury and Burwarton had to be cancelled and the competition was not able to go ahead. Despite this set back we were still very keen to support the show this year with a Sponsorship of the Rare and Minority Sheep Inter-Breed Championship. Results are as follows:
Rare & Minority Inter-Breed Champion – Badger Face Torddu Shearling Ewe, Owned by Harry Duxbury from Stratford-upon-Avon
Rare & Minority Inter- Breed Reserve Champion – Cotswold Ram Lamb, Owned by Davina Stanhope from Shropshire
Our thanks and appreciation go to the hard working team of organisers in the show office who were busy until the very last minute to make sure the show was a success. We look forward to next year as a sponsor and participant.
